Spectrum

This is the title track from the Mintzer big band cd Spectrum (DMP 1988)
This one is a tenor saxophone feature with several instances of call and response between the band and solo tenor sax. The tenor and drums duo at the onset of the solo section, and the solo builds through a series of backgrounds and scene changes. This is a gentle piece that does not go up too high in the brass, and is fairly easy to assemble.
